The birding here was great. Also some lemurs and many reptiles. Had a couple of lovely walks in the dry forest with our very good guide. Restaurant was a bit pricey but the food was good.

Fun park. I came with two friends and my driver-guide/boyfriend at the time. We stayed for a couple of days. Visited on foot and took a boat trip.

My experience at the Park was extremely enjoyable, to put it mildly. In fact, it was incredible. Bird- and animal watching started as soon as I arrived in the Park in the morning. Birds were everywhere: sickle-billed vanga, Madagascan hoopoe, broad-billed roller, Malagasy kingfisher, magpie...More

A nice park where you can see a lot of birds and small lemurs. There are different trail to walk but like in all the parks in Madagascar you have to pay for guide.

This is not a 'top tier' tourist destination, but it's worth an overnight. The overall experience with the lemurs is not as rich as possible in other parks. The hiking is beautiful but not spectacular. And the overall cost of park entrance, etc is high...More
